Ayahuasca Visions, by Shaman Pablo Amaringo
The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman
Anthropologist Luis Eduardo Luna provides an introduction to the Peruvian Amazon and its ethnobotanical tradition, the use of ayahuasca in a shamanistic context, and background on his long relationship with Pablo Amaringo. Throughout the text he supplements Amaringo's descriptions of the supernatural with plant identifications, cross-cultural comparisons, information about plant shamanism in Amazonia, and analyses of the symbols and iconography in Pablo's art.
Years ago, Peruvian Pablo Amaringo took the shaman's path. In this book he paints the intricate, detailed visions he experienced under the influence of ayahuasca. In his paintings one meets the living spirits of beneficial as well as harmful plants, the visitors from distant galaxies, and the ancient and wise guardians of esoteric knowledge.
